Abstract:

1862 saw the birth of modern warfare and the transformation of Lincoln's war to preserve the Union into a war to emancipate the slaves. Episode two begins with the political infighting that treatened to swamp Lincoln's administration and then follows Union general George McClellan's ill-fated campaign on the Virginia Peninsula where his hugh army meets a smaller but infinitely more resourceful Confederate force. During this episode we witness the battle of ironclad ships, partake of camplife, and watch slavery begin to crumble. We meet Ulysses S. Grant whose exploits come to a climax at the Battle of Shiloh. The episode ends with rumors of Europe's readiness to recognize the Confederacy.
